Here’s one I made earlier.
Well what are you going to do? At nine o’clock this morning it is pitchy black outside and pelting down with rain. Two hours ago I had an intense debate with myself about whether Dogs really need to eat “every” day. I am supposed to be looking after Fizz while her owners are away.
Don’t worry I fed her but I needed wellies and a hat to get from my door to hers (and I sat with her and played with her).
What do you think that this is?
I will give you a clue. I took these pictures whilst on holiday on Dartmoor it was January and it was very cold.
The Swiss seem to be the leaders in Haareis research with Dr Gerhart Wagner being at the forefront. There is a 38 page paper “Enlightening the Mystery of Hair Ice,” published in 2012 and available from Bern University which I haven’t read but apparently it concludes that in every example of Hair Ice that they studied there was also a fungus present which may have triggered the phenomenon.
Dr Wagner has also made this extremely enlightening video which is in German and unfortunately I can not understand a word of it.
Many, most, all of my readers are smarter than me and so I have included it so that you may find out as much as you want.
